Lillian will be lovingly remembered, for her boundless love for her family, inner strength and radiant energy.
Born on July 11, 1926, in Albany, NY. Lillian was one of four siblings. The family lived in a small home on Morton Avenue. Lillian had and shared wonderful memories of her childhood especially of her loving parents, Anna and Philip Golderman.
Lillian met Rueben Siegel and they married in 1950. They remained lifelong partners. In marriage she inherited two stepchildren. They stayed in Albany, where they raised two children. In 1988 they moved to Delray Beach, FL and lived joyfully until Rueben passed away in 1993. Whether in Albany or Delray Beach, Lillian created and maintained her world of strong friendships and passions.
